My Life

dark and alone
i shiver in this dingy room
deprived of warmth, food and soul
night after night
i prepare for my death
this place is
as the stench of decaying carcass fill the air

i once lived a life
full of love, summertime and song
father, mother, brother, sister
i was never alone

walks on parks, playing the harp
love ruled my world


one minute of empowerment
gave greed, lust, and gold
as my family die before me
i win victories in another goal

i live my life contented but alone

i was not rich but i had it all
everything that mattered, i owned
i need not fine dresses or gregarious shoes
i have my siblings
and they are what i choose


i hold my nod and shake my head
as the pain around my neck dig deeper
the laso biting into my flesh

i feel the pain, the dispair, and anger
as death stalks my soul
slithering, nearer and nearer

i used to play with harmonies and pray
i used to dance with the flowers as they sway
pure sunshine caressed my face
as i thank God for all this grace


i succumb to the pain i have created
i wait as minutes make my body flaccid
i shout for help as seconds enclose my fate

i stare at hell's gate
